Excess Insurer & Reinsurer Representation

Excess Insurer & Reinsurer Representation

T
he attorneys at Anderson Rasor & Partners, LLP, bring a combined experience of hundreds of years to the practice of defending doctors and hospitals against malpractice claims, personally managing more than 5,000 of these claims from pre-suit investigation and negotiation to ultimate resolution, including more than several hundred trials to verdict. In the last 20 years, many of these claims have involved a multimillion dollar exposure, threatening verdicts in excess of primary commercial coverage or self-insured limits. In the course of this practice, excess insurers and reinsurers have called upon our expertise in the evaluation of these claims. For more than 15 years, as partners at Lord, Bissell and Brook, we represented the London insurance market, both the syndicates at Lloyds and the London companies, protecting their interests by providing an evaluation independent of primary coverage counsel, supervising the management of the claims by those attorneys, and negotiating a disposition, not only for claims pending in Chicago, but also outside Illinois. Our expertise was also called upon for the analysis of coverage issues, such as the interpretation of shared-limits, anti-drop down and bankruptcy provisions. At Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP we continue to provide these same services for domestic insurers.
